SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has signed a network equipment Global Framework Agreement (GFA) with Vodafone on spanning ZTE’s complete telecoms infrastructure equipment portfolio. The GFA represents a contract framework that can be used if Vodafone decides to contract ZTE for network equipment in the future.

The agreement builds on agreements previously signed by the two companies making ZTE a Vodafone Qualified Global Supplier in April 2006, and a terminal GFA announced in February 2007.

“As a major global telecoms equipment supplier, ZTE is an important potential network equipment supplier to Vodafone worldwide,” said Detlef Schultz, Vodafone Global Supply Chain Management Director. “This GFA ensures that when Vodafone companies want to work with ZTE, the structure is in place to enable that to happen quickly and efficiently for both parties.”

“This GFA gives Vodafone companies access to ZTE’s comprehensive range of network equipment that covers every possible equipment need for every global mobile communications standard,” said Mr. Lin Cheng, President of ZTE West Europe. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Vodafone as a strategic global partner in the telecoms infrastructure equipment area.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
